Several years ago we replaced the plain builder grade vanity mirror with this classic gold one I found at Target. These walls used to be red, but since we are going to put our house on the market, we painted the small powder room a neutral color.
I hesitated a little bit when I took the mirror down because the finish is so pretty. But, I pressed on.
I taped up the edge and put newspaper over the whole thing. I tested the spray paint on a picture frame, but didn't like the way it looked, so I did some web surfing & several people suggested Rub and Buff Spanish Copper. So... off to Hobby Lobby I went.
It was very easy to apply it with a rag. Make sure you wear gloves. You do just as the name says ; rub it on, (let dry) and buff it.
The finish looked too much like antique gold (left side of frame) - not oil rubbed bronze, so ...... I mixed some black, brown and a brown metallic craft paint together and rubbed it on. I let it sit for about a minute & then rubbed off the excess. It looked much better. (bottom of the mirror)
Here is the finished project! The darker finish goes much better with the other dark accessories in the bathroom. Now I need to get some new towels!
I will post the before and after of my tiny powder room at another time, so stay tuned ....
